What I usually do in those cases is matching the output of "hwinfo" against the help texts in the menuconfig. I had a special case here because I use a PCI PATA controller card with additional drives which needs a different driver than the onboard controllers, and these two drivers use different naming schemes, so I ended up having hda and sda/sdb, which spoiled grub's menu.lst entries a little. So just in case, when booting and unsure which drive has what number, use the tab expansion in the grub interactive shell.
